Melrose Jam

OCTOBER – TUNE OF THE MONTH – Seneca Square Dance
The end of September brought a quick trip to North Carolina for the Celebration Jam in memory of our dear friend, Lil Plumer, who had recently passed away.  Lil Plumer never wanted a funeral; she wanted a party. How do musicians have a party, especially dulcimer players? They jam!

Perfect for an old time jam party and autumn barn dance, here’s Seneca Square Dance inspired by our friend Sharon, who joined Jean, Kay and me for the mountain trip.
